Ahhh.... that's better..

I guess I should clarify: it's not lists per se that I find "silly" (a poor 
choice of words), just their use for this particular problem...

Anyway, I took a look at KirbyBase, and decided to use that... it does almost 
exactly what I was trying to write myself, and does it reasonably quickly 

Thanks for all your help.
